I Am Scout: The Biography of Harper Lee

Charles J. Shields

To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the most widely read novels in American literature. Its also a perennial favorite in highschool English classrooms across the nation. Yet onetime author Harper Lee is a mysterious figure who leads a very private life in her hometown of Monroeville, Alabama, refusing to give interviews or talk about the novel that made her a household name. Lees life is as rich as her fiction, from her girlhood as a rebellious tomboy to her days at the University of Alabama and early years as a struggling writer in New York City. 

Charles J. Shields is the author of the New York Times bestselling biography Mockingbird: A Portrait of Harper Lee, which he has adapted here for younger readers. What emerges in this riveting portrait is the story of an unconventional, high-spirited woman who drew on her love of writing and her Southern home to create a book that continues to speak to new generations of readers. Anyone who has enjoyed To Kill a Mockingbird or Go Set a Watchman will appreciate this glimpse into the life of its fascinating author, which includes photographs of Harper Lee, her family, and the film version of To Kill a Mockingbird starring Gregory Peck. 

I Am Scout is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Childrens Book of the Year.

This biography provides a narrative of why Harper Lee’s mother was not described in the book. I enjoyed reading about Harper Lee’s college days and her interest in the law. For those who do not know, Truman Capote was a childhood friend and confidante if Harper Lee until adulthood. This biography was a real page turner.
